At Least 29 Attacks on Vital Facilities in January 2014



I. Executive Summary:
In January, the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) recorded at least 29 attacks on vital facilities, distributed according to the perpetrator party as follows:
A. Government forces: 27
B. Armed opposition factions affiliated with al Qaeda (ISIS): One
C. Armed opposition groups: One
The most notable vital facilities targeted in January:
13 places of worship, five schools, seven medical facilities, two markets, one of means of transport, one of power stations and energy sources.
In this report, the SNHR sheds light on the attacks on vital facilities that the network was able to document. We emphasize that the attacks documented make up the bare minimum of attacks carried out due to the many practical obstacles encountered during the documentation process we conduct.
As a result of its investigations, SNHR confirms that there were no military headquarters in the facilities included in this report, either before or during the attack. Government forces and other perpetrators must justify their attacks to the United Nations and the Security Council.
